Mitzvah Day

Join together with our entire TBH community and friends for our annual Mitzvah Day on January 14 from 9:00am to approximately 12:00pm

During Mitzvah Day, you can contribute to our collections, save lives by giving blood or learning to administer life saving drugs during an overdose, you can pack lunches for those in need, and make care packages for our unhoused neighbors.  You can craft blankets for children in crisis or sew pillowcases for children in foster care!  ECE children can participate in a Trike-A-Thon and all can enjoy yummy baked goods through our BHDS Elementary School hosted bake sale with all proceeds to benefit our Mitzvah Day program and children who are hungry. The day is filled with performing good deeds and giving back to others!
